Angry Birds fans are angry about Facebook game outage

Last month, we posted an article about how Angry Birds Friends just launched for Windows PC. For the past week or so, we’ve been getting a series of comments from fans saying that the Facebook version of Angry Birds does not work for them.

Angry Birds Friends has been out on Android and iOS devices for years as a competitive, tournament-based game, but it was never available to PC gamers as a download. It’s out now for free via the Microsoft Store.

A version of Angry Birds has also been playable on Facebook for a number of years and was made available on Messenger last year. This is the version that is apparently having technical difficulties with users.

Rovio’s social media accounts make no mention of a widespread outage. However, we suspect that – given the large number of complaints posted on our website – it’s not an isolated event.

“Angry Birds Friends on Facebook not working again. Out last night and tonight!” Jan commented on our site.

“How about getting in touch with your friends over on Facebook and get them to fix the game there. This is my 4th straight day not being able to play the game,” Tony said.

Some readers seem to be under the impression that we can fix the issue for them, but we would like to stress that we have no relationship with the game’s developer or with Facebook.

If you are having problems with the game, please contact the developer directly. In the meantime, we have reached out to Rovio for comment. We’ll update this story if we receive a response.

    Mine stopped working after I purchased some coins. I am angry bigtime about that. They took my money then stopped the game

  • Terry Moore says:

    I have spent plenty of money to play the game. I never got to play the tournament this week end. So I ask myself why do I want to continue a game that they cant fix for me.
    I love the game but at 68 I have no patience to try this and try that. Look at a forum. It displeases me greatly. Back to PS4 and Xbox tired of trying to fix your broken mess.

    Mine has been out for a few days now also. I deleted it and tried to reload it with no luck!!

    It hasn’t been opening for weeks. hey suggest Chrome. I don’t want to do that. I want to play on FB. Maybe the Birds arein FB Jail for unclean words or images.

  • Peter says:

    I’ve been playing this for years now and now it has just vanished. Tried to reinstall but no luck. Very annoyed – used to start my day with this

  • Anj says:

    It’s definitely been playing up or not appearing on FB in the games section. I use a Mac and now Firefox is currently (all of a sudden) not supported. Other browsers have constant flash updates to function.

  • Cheryl Heale says:

    Since new changes my game does not end and new one doesn’t start

  • Glenn says:

    Can you please sort this game out, ? every time…use coins, buy birds then the damn game crashes. Time and time again. Building coins up just so the game can crash and keep them, so annoying
